Academy Sports + Outdoors, a premier sports, outdoor and lifestyle retailer, announced it will add a second store in Columbia, South Carolina in July 2014 and that it has renewed its multi-year partnership with the Univ. of South Carolina. The new 72,000 square foot store will be located at the intersection of Park Terrace Dr. and Bower Pkwy., and bring approximately 150 new jobs to the area.
 
"We're thrilled about adding another convenient location for USC fans and active-minded families in the area to find all their sports, outdoor and lifestyle products at our everyday low prices," said Tammi Hysell, Academy Sports + Outdoors' senior director of promotions. "We're really excited to further our commitment to Columbia with this second store and continuing our partnership with the university."

"Academy Sports + Outdoors has been a great community partner since day one," said Univ. of South Carolina athletic director, Ray Tanner. "We really appreciate their support of our athletics program, the Columbia community as a whole, and being a great destination for Gamecock fans to get all their gear to cheer us on."
